Product Description

3 Movements From Lincolnshire Posy Composed by Percy Grainger. Arranged by Robert Longfield. For String Orchestra. Published by Ludwig Masters Publications. (Catalog # 50250068, UPC: 9781621567004)

Percy Grainger is so wonderfully quirky and these musical wildflowers are a perfect example. Lisbon (Sailor's Song) is in 6/8 "with plenty of lit" plus activity in all parts, accidentals liberally sprinkled throughout and some "2 against 3." Horkstow Grange (The Miser and his Man: a local tragedy) is done slowly and "singingly" using alternating 4/4, 5/4 and 3/2 measures, with rhythmic unisons in the accompanying parts and a beautiful melody floated over top.  The Lost Lady Found (Dance Song) is "Fast, but sturdily" conducted in "1" with offbeat accents and jaunty syncopation.  Everyone but basses gets a turn at the melody while they "louden lots bit by bit" until they finish up "hammeringly" with a ffff.  This string orchestra setting is the first appearance in any medium other than concert band.  Grainger based it on folksongs he collected, intending each as a musical portrait of the individual singers who introduced the tunes to him.
